Our academic fellowship programme aims to conduct research in areas broadly related to monetary policy and financial stability, foster ongoing collaborative research relationships and help our research staff to develop their expertise.
We envisage that fellowships will usually involve working jointly with our staff. The fellow will visit us for a period of time to work directly with co-authors. During these visits, the fellow will also be expected to perform a collegial role: presenting their own work and providing feedback on other aspects of our activities.
Fellowship proposals are welcome in all areas relevant to our monetary policy and financial stability roles, including:
- macroprudential policies
- interactions among macroeconomic policies (macroprudential, monetary, fiscal)
- the role of terms of trade or commodity price movements
- business cycle analysis
- pricing dynamics
- structural macromodelling
- new developments in forecasting.
We particularly value research on topics specific to New Zealand.

Submission process for our academic fellowships
Start by discussing your proposal with a prospective co-author from our staff. They will gauge interest in your proposal within the relevant departments, help develop the proposal and follow up on any decision.
Your proposal should clearly specify:
- your objectives
- how you will allocate responsibility across the external and internal parties
- your professional experience.
Evaluation of project proposals
Our relevant departmental managers will jointly assess your proposal based on the following criteria:
- perceived benefit to us, including how the project meets the objectives of the fellowship programme
- fit with our current research priorities (where applicable)
- your reputation and experience
- probability of successful completion
- detail and completeness of the proposal.
